Is it fall yet? I need to know what happens between Rayna and Deacon on Nashville! — Michelle
They'll make it out of their finale car accident with only bumps and bruises, but the emotional injuries will be far more serious. "They are never going to have [a] smooth-sailing relationship," creator Callie Khouri tells us, pointing to Deacon's discovery that he's Maddie's father. "[Season 2] is not going to look like Father Knows Best. I don't think Deacon ever thought of himself as father material. We'll see him grapple with... whether or not he's right." Worse, given Deacon's dangerous bender, Rayna will feel even more justified in her decision to lie. "She was kind of right not to tell him," Khouri says. "He couldn't handle it."

For Sean Patrick Flanery, Young Indiana Jones Never Grows Old

Sean Patrick Flanery

More than 15 years ago, Indiana Jones got a younger counterpart with the series The Adventures of Young Indiana Jones. Young Indy was not only a non-stop source of historical adventures, he was also the break-out role for Sean Patrick Flanery. Since his years as Young Indy, for which he shot shows in more than 35 countries and saw a plethora of guest stars, Flanery has gone on to act in films like The Boondock Saints and shows, such as The Dead Zone (USA). Now, Young Indy's back on the scene with a ten-disc DVD set of The Adventures of Young Indiana Jones: Volume Three: The Years of Change (ready for action today). As the DVD arrives, reminisced with Flanery about his real-life Indy adventures in places from Rome to Prague (where Catherine Zeta-Jones made a cameo). We also mused about the paparazzi's ethics, both in Indy's time and ours, and got the back story on what he's up to next, in his post-Indy era. Young Indy was one o read more

Dead Zone Preview: The End Is Near... Really!

Anthony Michael Hall, The Dead Zone

Armageddon is so last week. USA Network’s The Dead Zone (Sundays at 10 pm/ET) ended its first season in 2002 with a hook as fresh as it was horrifying: Psychic Johnny Smith (Anthony Michael Hall) had a vision of Washington, D.C., in nuclear ruin. The man responsible? Ambitious politico Greg Stillson (Sean Patrick Flanery). Five years later that plot’s still playing out, but now many shows spin on the fear of an apocalypse (Heroes, Sleeper Cell) or have nukes that actually do detonate (Jericho, 24). What was once unfathomable is now almost ho-hum. So how will The Dead Zone — back for its sixth season — keep us hooked on its doomsday scenario? By twisting it, turning it and sending it in read more

Breakfast Clubber's Dead Again

On Sunday at 10 pm/ET, USA's The Dead Zone returns for its much anticipated fourth season. Producer and star Anthony Michael Hall (previously best known for '80s flicks like The Breakfast Club and Sixteen Candles) is ecstatic that his spooky show is at the forefront of the current trend of psychic-themed dramas, like Medium and Jennifer Love Hewitt's upcoming Ghost Whisperer.

"I feel in my heart that The Dead Zone is one of the best shows out there," the 37-year-old original Brat Packer says, "and there is a lot of stiff competition. I'm proud that it has inspired a few other television shows. It is ultimately flattering — that's how I look at it."

Since Hall's character, Johnny Smith, can see into the future, he's more than happy to foretell some major happenings. Spoiler alert! Read no further if you don't wish to know anything about the upcoming season.... read more
